is this method any different than the flashing of the official kdz? Will it still lose reception from the stock 2.2?

Hi everyone, I was using a Thrill 4G (LGP925) until I flashed the phone with the firmware V21B_00.kdz Everything went fine, I followed the instructions, there were no connection problems. The program itself told me it completed the process and that close option was available. My phone is eternally in a loading screen with the LG logo and a design and it looks like it is loading but it isn’t. It stayed like that for 15 minutes until I removed the battery. It happens the same all the time. It looks like it could charge the battery. I am not living in the US so I am not using AT&Ts network so I needed the Gingerbread update for the battery. I am reading and reading and I cannot find a solution to my problem. I do not know what went terribly wrong. I do not know what to do, I need your help. Thanks in advance…

Carmaine, go to xda developers and ask them. also check out this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1343915 it might have some info on how to fix your phone.

I do not recommend for anyone to follow this method and the links are dead anyway.

The link to the flash tool is broken. Is there an alternate source for this tool?

The rom is not letting my phone connect to my ATT network.

Someone could make all the steps?
the result was satisfactory? the cellphone still works 100%
the 3D camera and all its functions are running at 100% or better than before?

I am having an issue getting flash tool to say ready in port 1. Did I miss something?

hello … I have a LG Thrill 4G (P925) and let me know if I can try to update with the files that are above. Because look at the video of the process and found that some of the steps appears to select the port CDMA. not create conflicts? Thank you.
